Even though the city of Murphy is quite small in size compared to other cities near us, we have quite the diverse group of citizens, cultures, history and uniqueness. Murphy’s first ever “Experience Murphy” will be the perfect time and place to celebrate this!
On Saturday, April 5th, coinciding with the Grand Opening of the new Murphy Central Park, which is located on the Municipal Complex grounds, “Experience Murphy” will debut! Here Murphy will provide opportunities for everyone to “showcase the vast array of culture within our borders. It will truly be a chance to experience Murphy.” This is expected to become an annual festival.
Rob Hunter of the Ballard Street Music Company will host the event. Some performances include Indian, Egyptian, African, Greek, Irish, Korean and Chinese artists and groups. The finale will be by a rock band called “The Kildares.” This is a free event for the public and food/drinks may be purchased beginning at 11:00 a.m.

11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. – Radio Disney Road Crew Show will be in the amphitheater
1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. – Official Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening of the Park
